We already have it

I saw part of the Kennedy Center Honors show the other night. Sidney Portier was honoring Oprah and he was talking about how little she had growing up. He went on to say that what she did have was already within her and it has gotten her to wher... Read more
A Valid Excuse
Thursday, December 30, 2010      6 comments

No, not an excuse for not working out or eating right, but an excuse to all those people who ask my why I'm eating the way I am or working out. The positive thing for me about my cholesterol being up is that I can use it as my "reason" for doing... Read more
A Better Reason to Get Healthy

I had my yearly appointment with the endocrinologist today. I have a strong family history of heart disease so I have been on meds for years. I had very good numbers last year even though I'd gained back some of the weight I'd lost the year befo... Read more
Cutting myself some slack
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      6 comments

I started a new program yesterday and missed my very first workout! Not that long ago I would have either "started over tomorrow" and possibly blown the rest of the day or at the very least, let it drive me crazy. I'd worry about when I could ma... Read more
Making my way back

I've had a good week and the sugar cravings have gone away. I knew it would be a battle for a few days and then it would get easier and it has. I'm experiencing very few cravings now. I've gotten all my workouts in so far this week. My son and I... Read more

My stepdaughter and I went to pick up the girls and the older one (my student, 8 yrs.) was crying and didn't want to leave her mom. Her mom reassured her that we were going to have fun and we would take good care of her. We went to McDonalds (th... Read more

Thanks for all your kind comments on yesterday's blog. The family started their move today and I'm so glad for that. We have our outing all planned for tomorrow night. It's nice to have older children (one still at home) at home. It gives me mor... Read more

I took one of my students home tonight after our After School Academy we hold twice per week. Her mom doesn't have a car so that's the only way she can stay. Her mom found out that they get to move to an apt. right across from the school tomorr... Read more
Make that 2 days...

Today was almost harder than yesterday (not sure why), but I made it through. I had to stay longer at work (for our after school program) and then drive some of the kids home. I still had errands to run so it was pretty late when I got home and ... Read more

Quick update
Sunday, October 03, 2010      3 comments

First, I ended up with a stomach bug yesterday so no workout. I got quite a bit done around here before it hit so that was good. I wanted to get into school for a while, which didn't happen. I'm feeling better today, but am going to wait until t... Read more
Week 1 recap
Saturday, October 02, 2010      4 comments

My first week on BFL went fairly well, but there is improvement to be made. I did very well on the nutrition side of things. I missed 2 workouts and know I need to start getting up and doing them in the morning before work. That just works bett... Read more

So, I spent a couple more hours getting prepared for tomorrow's meeting. I have the support of my special ed. director and principal so we'll see where this meeting with parents goes. I have another parent meeting late tomorrow morning as well. ... Read more
Long day
Tuesday, September 28, 2010      6 comments

It's day 4 of the new plan. Nutrition was good, but I think the stress of the past 2 days wore me out. My plan was to do ST when I got home tonight, but I'm wiped out. I'm going to bed early and if I'm feeling like it in the morning I'll do card... Read more
